Diablo III Patch Reduces Item Wear

Blizzard announces a new patch is now live for Diablo III in the Americas, updating their action/RPG sequel to version 1.0.3a. The new version addresses several bugs and also reduces the amount of "wear-and-tear" damage to items by 50% (not to be confused with the 10% item endurance death penalty).

That's my only real complaint about the game at the moment, Blizzard's extreme reactions to innocuous farming methods that do more to punish players than fix bots and gold sellers. Who cares if HC characters were farming Dark Cellar and Act I goblins... their punishment was spending 4-5 boring hours a night farming the same damn goblin over and over again.

Yeah I'm not sure who they think they are fighting here, many of the things they keep hitting with the nerf bat are what keep players coming back to the game in the long term. The story stuff well, I think we've all torn it up in several topics already. It's poorly written teen fantasy, I don't really care but it would be nice if we didn't need to manually skip the games hundred pointless cutscenes.

As for item drops and statistics, personally I care a lot more about the quality of what is dropping as opposed to the rate. I loved collecting sets and uniques in Diablo 2 for example. It just has to be useful and interesting in some way, I can put up with needing to farm to get it. Diablo 2 had a lot of interesting ways to influence your drops as well. For example there was item imbues, player addable sockets, charms (ok inv tetris sucked), jewels and eventually runewords. Just even having those few things would alleviate much of the backlash they're facing now, not to mention they make more interesting quest rewards.
